Is it possible to send WhatsApp messages and make calls via WhatsApp on WiFi in Dubai (European sim)? Same question for FaceTime? Traveling next week.
FaceTime no. WhatsApp you can message, but no calls. Skype is also not working.
I made what's app calls and video calls no problem when I was in dubai in January. FaceTime didn't work.
calls on WhatsApp, face time and skype currently not working unless you run it over a VPN
What's a VPN Blighty? Friends that I am going with at the end of the months have kids and want to 'see' them while we are away & I was wondering if it was possible
Thanks Latimer :O) x
Thanks everyone for your replies, much appreciated! I assume Viber calls aren’t allowed either?
Viber not working here either
VPN's are not illegal in the UAE if used for legal purposes, many businesses use them as a standard. VPN is Virtual Private Network. A google search will give you a list of providers, although you can download some within the UAE it is simpler to load on your device before you arrive.
I can understand the official stance on VPN's but what is wrong with Skype or Whatsapp calls? Are there any alternatives to Skype that are acceptable?
